    Well, that is good for both of us since my background is more in professional destruction anyways.

    I was just fantasizing and thinking out loud and getting some feedback. No need to be a jerk about it.

    I would frankly rather see 18-20+ round magazines for the Hi-Power than a Hi-Power that takes Beretta magazines.

    Unless you've invested in a boatload of Beretta 92 mags, what's the point?

    That actually is a really excellent point.

    Back some years ago I think there were some surplus 17 and 20 rounders kicking around the US market, I think they were from Argentina and/or South Africa but I can't quite recall.

    Mec Gar apparently did make a 20 rounder as well, with the part # MGBRHP20B, but it seems like it's a discontinued item as it's not listed on their current website and is out of stock everywhere else it is listed.
    Must not have been a big seller.
    I have heard that the Mec Gar 15rd mags are less reliable than the standard 13s. Something about the follower design changes necessary to get two extra rounds in the same space IIRC. I think the follower can tilt or something. I have one Mec Gar 15rd but haven't used it enough to provide any first-hand reports of issues, I don't shoot my Hi Power much and when I do I tend to use the 13s.

    CDNN had the KRD mags for a while years ago. I had a few. They were basically a parkerized Hi power mag body with a thinner metal follower and a plus two extension to get the 17 rounds in them. The few I had never worked great with 17 rounds in them. Downloading them a round or two and they were okay. Seeing as you can get 15 round Mecgars brand new I don't see why one would want 92 mags. Mecgar makes mags for all of the pistols mentioned in this thread anyway. David

    I seem to recall reading that FBI HRT had 20-round magazines for their 9mm Hi-Powers. Which makes it all the more unfortunate that MecGar doesn't make the 20-round magazines any more.
